great benefits although subject to state legislative and executive discretion/change. Employees contribute increased amounts to health and pension. Reduce collective bargining impact in 2010.
they offer good employee benefits
Very generous vacation/personal time policy
Generous time off compared to private sector. Great pension plan, decent health benefits but these are changing for the worse every year.
Excellent vacation/sick/pto; decent health plan (State); no paid family leave
Good pension although general cost of benefits are going up
open enrollment period tricky and changes depending on provider
Excellent benefits! Comprehensive health and dental benefits are offered at state rate, which is a couple of hundred a month for a family. You also get paid time off and holidays. The only reason I didn't give the organization 5 stars for benefits is because my experience with the benefits office has been pretty bad. The nature of such a large organization is that there are too many people working on each task, so there are bound to be mistakes due to miscommunication. My benefits package didn't start up when they were suppose to, and I was concerned that I would have a huge medical bill for an issue that took place while I was waiting for the benefits to get their act together and get me enrolled correctly. In the end, everything worked out, but it was very stressful. Other colleagues have shared similar stories with the benefits office, as well as payroll.
